The ZAO ENIX Eleron-3 is an Unmanned Aircraft System (UAS) designed, developed, and produced by local Russian industry. It is intended for the Intelligence-Surveillance-Reconnaissance (ISR) role and features many industry standards including an autonomous flight option, automatic landing retrieval, and GPS navigation. Its mission payload is modular, able to accept an Infra-Red / Television combination unit or television / thermal imager module set. This provides the aircraft with the needed capabilities to survey and deliver real-time over-battlefield information to operators on the ground. Launching is by way of a simple rail with collapsing support legs.

The general design of the aircraft includes a blended wing-body shape with vertical planes seated along the trailing edges of the swept-back wing planform. The nose of the aircraft is rounded and features an underslung optics unit with full 360-degree traversal while the rear of the fuselage houses the powerplant driving the twin-bladed propeller unit (the blades are initially folded, springing to action upon launch).

Simple to field and operate, the Eleron-3 is designed for tactical-level, squad-based operations, providing a critical "eye in the sky" for forward-operating ground troops.
